One of the most noteworthy is the “Kannonosho (crab kiln)”, which was built with a spiritual theme. A mystical space expands as you walk through a dedicated approach. The room with elaborate furnishings and interior creates a solemn atmosphere, and the 100 square meter wide private garden creates a luxurious extraordinary space.
